Walk Like An Egyptian

I can't believe I've been working from home now for almost 11 months. I'm really missing my work colleagues - TEAMS is great but isn't the same as proper contact.

One of the lovely ladies I work with is celebrating her birthday this weekend and she loves anything Egyptian. I knew I had once acquired some foiled Egyptian decoupage at a craft fair sometime to make the perfect card...

The image is of Tutankhamun - the boy Pharoah- whose tomb was discovered in 1922 by Howard Carter.

The decoupage is difficult to see in these photos but it was very easy to cut out. I used a lovely shaped die from The Works to cut out the image and the black matting.The backing papers are from a Forever Friends foiled patterned paper pack and match the image perfectly. I created the greeting in Publisher in the appropriately named Papyrus font.

I'm playing along with the challenges at:

Creative Knockouts #386 - Die cuts and punches
Watercooler Wednesdays #306 - all about occasions

Thanks for visiting



  1. What a cool card. It's gorgeous. And I totally feel for you - I thought 12 weeks working from home was hard enough. Happy that I can go back to the office. Thanks for sharing your card at Watercooler Wednesday this week,

  2. What a beautiful card! I agree with you on the TEAMS thing...I love techie stuff but 11 months is
    a long time without interaction. I hope you get to go back soon! Thank you so much for joining us at Krafty Chicks Challenge this week for our Any Occasion theme.
